There's Got To Be A Morning After

Found a lump on my breast last week which has me in total anxiety attack mode. I went into denial and told myself there was nothing there--but it didn't go away. So, I have decided to bite the bullet and accept the fact that I have to go through all the shit--I'm taking things one step at a time and trying not to visualize myself dead. I'll call the doctors this morning and arrange whatever they say to do--mammogram and visit. I have to keep thinking that there are three people I know who survived type 3 breast cancer--the worst kind. I will not despair.

Then there is the question--do I contact my mother in Mexico where she is staying for two months? She will go bananas as her mom died of breast cancer. I don't need her sympathy--criticism of hubby, take charge attitude and suggestions, etc. I think I'll wait until I know what's going on--if I need a biopsy, etc. Then I'll contact her. I'll let my sister know what's going on and we can plan our psychological attack together.

This just sucks big time.

((((RITA)))) Hon, I hope everything turns out to be completely fine. My sister in law found the same thing about a year ago and it just turned out to be nothing more than a harmless cyst. I hope it's the same for you.
(((((Rita))))) Honey, I'm sorry to hear that. But more times than not it turns out to be nothing. My mom had a few lumps removed from her breast a few years back and it was all a false alarm. You'll see, hon. It's probably nothing. (((((hugs)))))

Fly safe,
Cathy

Thanks guys

You're the best. I have an appointment for 1:30 today with my OB/GYN. I'll keep you abreast (couldn't help it) of what happens.

love ya,
I know you've got a lot on your mind right now. Just wanted to let you know that I miss ya, girl, and am hoping real hard for the very, very best for you. Keep that chin up and your spirit flying high. You'll be okay.

Hugs and kisses,
Your sister-in-spirit
Cathy
My thoughts are with you. My mother is a breast cancer survivor - mastectomy on one in 1975! and a lumpectomy on the other in 1995 (I think). You are doing the right thing by going in quickly. Regardless of the diagnosis, my personal opinion - let your mother enjoy her time in Mexico, unless you really feel you need her support. This is about you - keep reminding yourself.
I'm keeping you in my thoughts today... good luck!
You're doing all the right things. It's probably something harmless. My mum had a lump that turned out to be nothing. I hope you hear good news soon.
